Poor fitment, not very comfortable, don't waste your money. I usually wear jeans sized 33x32, or 34x32 if they are tight fitting. A friend had these in 32 and they were too tight. I ended up getting the 34's. They must be sized for NBA players because they were ridiculously long, and cannot be hemmed thanks to the zippered cuff. the waist also fit more like a 36 and I had to crank the belt down, which bunched them. I tried to shrink them in the wash but that didn't help. The crotch is too high and pinches the goods when riding, also the "regular" cut is more like a loose/baggy fit. I felt like a Ruff Ryder when I wore them. The hip inserts sit awkward and they don't give you much Velcro to get them properly seated, ended up not using them, which was a selling point for me. They are also extremely heavy, and can be a workout just walking in them. I thought they would be a lot better especially coming from Alpinestars. I regret this purchase and wish I held out for the newer gear coming out. Such as the Riff jeans which to me is exactly what I wanted a riding pant in jean form so I don't look like a power ranger if I get off the bike and go in anywhere. Don't waste your money, and wait for the new stuff, there are better options coming out in this price range. September 10, 2015
Sorry guys, sending back The fabric, right on. The protection, AWESOME! The fit...I would have to remove my junk to make them comfortable. I liked the idea of the flex panel in the back, but they are cut so low that my crack was on display. I am 200 pounds 6" tall and they did nit work for me. For the price I want excellence. Who did they cut these for? I choose the 38" waist and the length was perfect! I just wish they would have worked for me, but I don't want to sing soprano! Back to my chaps I guess. Thank you Revzilla for your great return policy. It is why I keep coming back. Mind you, I have never returned anything! Antony spell it out great in the videos. Any suggestion for an alternative?

Knee Armor Placement Is Off I'm 6", but I have small waist. As in the video, I bought my waist size which was 30. I'm a new rider, when I had the pants on it felt like they fit. But then later I realized the knee armor was way to high while riding and sitting in chairs later on. At first I didn't realize it, also there isn't any explanation of where the knee armor is suppose to sit exactly. The knee armor I received was different than what was shown in the video. I don't know if I got an older model or something. The video says the knee armor is moveable up and down. It barely moves at all, like a few centimeters, doesn't even make a big difference. If you have a slim body type, I wouldn't recommend these jeans at all, you'll have to get a shorter waist size but then the knee armor will be way to high. Hemming the bottom of the jeans doesn't move the knee armor up and down. I brought it to a tailor and they said it'd be complicated to get it resized properly. If you only focus on the waist size like the video says, you'll miss the knee armor being in the right size. If the video shows the knee armor and how little it moves up and down, you'd see it doesn't really make a difference. If the size was great I'd be happy with it. But I already took off the tags only realizing once I was riding that they kept riding up and the knee protectors didn't work at all. I'm considering just using my motocross knee guards with these pants and removing the CE rated knee pads, but they're too skinny to really fit them underneath well, and over it isn't much protector either.

Also for the winter thick enough for the winter, a bit warm for the summer January 19, 2015
Mostly good Quite surprised at how good these look even with knee pads in. Knee pads need to get formed to your knee for a while. Before that they look hectic. I tried them on with the hip pads inserted and the fit was great, but then I put my shorts on and went to remove the hip pads and one of the velcro strips ripped off completely with very little force. It didn't matter much to me since my shorts have better CE rated hip pads but I was a little disappointed that they just came apart so easily. I inspected the seems on the other velcro strip and the rest of the jeans and they all seem top notch. I will most likely remove the other velcro strip now instead of re attaching the one that came off and use my riding shorts underneath. December 29, 2014
Size limitations... I ended up returning these pants. The denim is a little thin. The styling and fit is awesome. But the deal killer is the length is too long for me and there is no easy way to hem them. Also they are hand wash only and no tumble dry. I wish they had more options in the length. October 14, 2014
Great jeans Great looking jeans that are protective and have a comfortable feel. I could wear these jeans all day if the knee pads are removed. Awesome, but expensive. September 10, 2014
These Should Be Rated Higher! The Alpinestars Hellcat Kevlar Jeans are everything I have been searching for in a riding jean. You may be put off by the price, but rest assured these are worth it--especially if you are looking for a protective pant that you can wear on and off the bike. Sizing / Comfort / Style: I'm 5'11 170lbs 32 waist. I wear Dainese Hard Shorts when I ride so I usually get a 34 pant to accommodate them. 34 in the Hellcat fits perfectly--not too snug. The stretch panel at the back isn't something you find in typical riding denim and definitely aids comfort and motion when seated. Cut and style are just what I was hoping for. The dark wash isn't accurately captured in the product photo. It is a nice deep dark wash with gold/amber contrast stitching. But probably the best feature of all is the ZIPPERED HEM! This allows you to wear protective boots such as the Sidi ST's with your jeans. Most other jeans I've tried were too fashion focused and the boot opening wasn't large enough to fit over my Sidi's. Protection: I was comforted to see the large Kevlar panels on the seat that also continue down the sides. I previously tried the S/S Run with the Bulls Jeans that seemed to have the absolute bare minimum amount of paneling to be called kevlar jeans. The absence of CE hip protectors isn't that big of a deal to me since I usually wear armored shorts (although 5mm hip pads are included). What impressed me the most however were the CE knee protectors included with these jeans! They are 3 layers thick, layered in a design similar to the Rev'it Seesoft back protector. They offer great coverage of the knee and continue somewhat down the shin. They are much more substantial and inspire greater confidence than the Dainese pro-shape knee protectors I am most familiar with. The Astars knee protectors line up perfectly for me, but for those for whom they don't, sell them and consider getting a set of strapping knee guards! So to sum up these pants were everything I was looking for in a riding jean. In my view the Hellcats strike a great balance of style and protection, and are way more versatile than a more focused textile touring pant or race leathers. I think I may need to go and sell my Dainese Nevada 0K jeans now. . . May 30, 2014

Gentil N: I like riding in jeans, the protection offered by means of the kevlar was a huge plus. The knee pads are pretty much worthless as the pant loose and they move around. I wear Dr. Bohn under my pants for protection. Jun 6, 2014

Charvetz S: Looking for protection and comfort. My current pair provide protection, but fall short in the comfort department. May 5, 2014
Richard M: I did a lot of research before I purchased these pants. I am looking for all the protection I can get. These pants seam to provide all you can purchase in protection while still having the appearance of a decent looking pair of jeans. They don't look like work pants or some European skinny jeans. Only time will tell if they are truly worth the price. Feb 26, 2014

Erick F: I'm 5'9, 195lbs and bought the size 34. I usually wear size 34 in all types of pants and they fit a little loose. A belt helps a lot. The legs are a little too long for me but I wear the smx plus boots and it helps me not drag them so much. I'd recommend a size 32, not sure if leg size changes. Feb 13, 2014
Reply to Erick Good answer? Yes (0) No (0)
Thang D: Erick,

Thanks for the feedback. I'm more like a 32.5 to 32.75. 32'' pants used to fit well until life got more interesting these last few years. Nowadays, all 33'' pants and jeans that I come across fit, but require a belt.

Regarding the inseams, I'm not concerned with its longer length since I typically purchase pants with 34'' inseams and have a seamstress hem them (I'm probably at 32.5'' to 32.75'' inseams; when will they ever carry odd-sized inseams??). From my new-found understanding of riding pants, longer is better since they don't ride up like high waters when riding sport-like bikes. Supposedly, the extra fabric helps during low-side crashes, but I may be mistaking. Feb 13, 2014
Thang D: By the way, I'm concerned about 34'' pants since they may be far too big. Furthermore, I fear that I will need to either gain more weight or work extremely hard to slim down my waist to fit even-sized pants....

Slimming down is more appealing, but I managed to go from a clean 33'' down to 32.25''-32.5'' in 9 months of extreme exercise-mixes from 5 hours per week of running and off-road bike-riding to well past 13 hours of swimming, workouts, and running. Perhaps, I'll need to prioritize and mix up my abdominal workouts better.

I've slacked off since, but may get back into the groove with the "scooter" and more exercise. Feb 13, 2014
Holt M: Thang,
I did purchase the jeans and ended up returning them because they did not fit properly. I had an issue with the rise of the pants and felt that it was too short. I am still looking for a good pair of Kevlar jeans.

Thang D: Holt,

My Dainese D6 Kevlar jeans just arrived. Sized at 33'' along the waist, they fit nicely; unwashed, I have merely 1 hour in them.

The fit and feel seem fine so far. I can probably fold the length half an inch higher than stock for a more greaser or rockabilly look and have less slack down there. They're definitely tighter around the legs than I would like, but far from that hipster (hot-girl-tight) look. This should keep them from riding up too far during a low-side crash.

Regarding these even-sized jeans, I will have to stay away from them since they will look very funny with 1 full inch of slack on the waist. I presume the waist will have more slack as the day goes on to break them in. Like my existing 33'' jeans, they fit well out of the launder, but requires a belt as the days goes on.

The rise on the waistline is definitely not like low-rise nor normal jeans from this day and age. They sit higher up the waist -- unless I wear a size 34'' and wear them gansta-style. Feb 14, 2014

Reply to Jaime Good answer? Yes (0) No (0)
Thang D: Thanks to everybody's responses and the precise fitting of my new 33'' Dainese jeans, I may well pick up the Alpinestars with 34'' waist.

Due to the thickness of the motorcycle/kevlar-reinforced jeans and presumably the less-likelihood of its stretch, the inch of slack may not be an issue like the thinner-jean cousins. Feb 18, 2014

A shopper asked: How do you put the knee and hip armor in? Do you have to take off the pants and do it from the inside? Or can you do it while wearing them already from the outside? Apr 3, 2015
Answer this · Send to friends Good question? Yes (0) No (0)
Chris B: There are pockets for the armour to fit in the knee area, and the hip armour attachs with velcro.
Therefore you have to have the armour in place before you put on the jeans. I've not tried the hip armour yet but the knee armour is very flexible and not noticeable when riding or walking.Having said that the armour seems very flexible and not very thick, but it is certified to protect! The jeans are very comfortable and I ordered a size 32 waist and they are a perfect fit, nice and long so they don't ride up on the bike. They also have kevlar panel for your rear end and knee areas. They have a good stretch panel at the top rear waist and they are not very low riding, fit like 501's - fairly high waist.

Daniel J: The knee armor is in a pocket inside the jeans so, yes, you would have to remove the pants to take the armor out or in. The hip armor uses velcro at the waist and it's probably possible to slip that in or out while wearing the pants. Apr 3, 2015

Brian V: The pockets for the armor are on the inside of the pants, you'll have to take the pants off or certainly half way down to access the pads. Apr 14, 2015

Craig F asked: Is it possible to hem these pants and still maintain the zipper and velcro closure at the bottom? Oct 7, 2014
Answer this · Send to friends Good question? Yes (0) No (0)
Jason N: Yes, the seamstress pretty much cut off the bottom portion of the pant and moved it up. The Kevlar doesn't reach down that far so you don't lose any protection, but you do keep the zipper / velcro. It was a few dollars more, but you can't really notice it. I have really short legs (normal jeans in 32/30) and it was about as much as she could remove before getting to the kevlar / knee protector pouches. Oct 7, 2014
Reply to Jason Good answer? Yes (0) No (0)
Craig F: Hi Jason, thanks for the answer. I also have the 32/30 sizing. So she cut above the zipper and reconnected? I just want to shorten by about an inch. I like them a little long for riding, just not as long as these are. Oct 8, 2014

A shopper asked: So I am looking toy but these pants but im worreid about the sizing. My US jean size is 36 but when i use the size chart for all the other measurements it says athe thigh size shoud be around 60cm. when I measure my thigh its 72cm (as i used to play college football). Why this is copcerniong becasue when i buy my jeans from any store the waist being 36 fits loose but the thighs are alays tight. so what should i do for sizing? Apr 21, 2014
Answer this · Send to friends Good question? Yes (0) No (0)
Richard M: These jeans are a pretty full cut in the upper thigh. Unless your legs are just massive I think they should fit you fine. I wear a 36" in Lucky Brand Jeans and I got a 36" in these. They fit just fine. I would agree that they are a little long for me. However, when you are on the the bike they fit great. You are not going to want to rock these jeans in public much due to the weight, look, and knee armor.

That being said, I still think they are a great jean with protection for the $$$
